"New Pledge of Allegiance" - a school prayer

Since the Pledge of Allegiance 
And 
The Lord's Prayer 
Are not allowed in most 
Public schools anymore 
Because the word 'God' is mentioned ... 
A kid in Arizona wrote a NEW School prayer:


"New Pledge of Allegiance"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now I sit me down in school 
Where praying is against the rule 
For this great nation under God 
Finds mention of Him very odd.  

If scripture now the class recites, 
It violates the Bill of Rights. 
And anytime my head I bow 
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green, 
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene ... 
The law is specific, the law is precise. 
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.  

For praying in a public hall 
Might offend someone with no faith at all ... 
In silence alone we must meditate, 
God's name is prohibited by the state.  

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, 
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks ... 
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible. 
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, 
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King. 
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong, 
We're taught that such 'judgements' do not belong ...  

We can get our condoms and birth controls,  
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles ... 
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,  
No word of God must reach this crowd.  

It's scary here I must confess, 
When chaos reigns the school's a mess. 
So, Lord, this silent plea I make: 
Should I be shot; My soul please take! 


Amen
Verkondig die woord; hou aan tydig en ontydig; weerlê, bestraf, vermaan in alle lankmoedigheid en lering; want daar sal ‘n tyd wees wanneer hulle die gesonde leer nie sal verdra nie, maar, omdat hulle in hul gehoor gestreel wil wees, vir hulle ‘n menigte leraars sal versamel volgens hulle eie begeerlikhede, en die oor sal afkeer van die waarheid en hulle sal wend tot fabels. Maar wees jy in alles nugter; ly verdrukking; doen die werk van ‘n evangelis; vervul jou bediening.
